Melodies for Kabbalat Shabbat

Kabbalat Shabbat (“Welcoming Shabbat”) services are coming back to CBI this month!

We’ll be holding Friday night services on a Friday night near the end of the month all summer long. Our first one will be Friday, May 31. Services begin at 6:15 and will last about an hour. Join us! (Subsequent dates include Friday June 28, Friday July 26, and Friday August 23. We hope to carry Kabbalat Shabbat forward after the summer also, so stay tuned for fall dates.)

It’s been a while since we’ve had regular Friday night services at CBI, so here are many of the melodies we’ll be using that evening. Feel free to watch / listen in advance if you want to refresh your memory — or just listen to them for the sheer pleasure of hearing meaningful prayers with beautiful tunes!

Blessings to all,

Rabbi Rachel and the Spiritual Life committee
